This is 2

So we’re in the thick of it, here. The terrible twos. The tantrum phase. And it’s real. Don’t have kids? Congratulations on feeling well-rested and having unscratched corneas! Let me explain it to you: Parenting a two year old is like living on top of a dormant volcano. There’s no telling when it’ll go off,…

Vietnamese Chicken

Hey it’s me, but this will be brief I think because my window of me-time is screeching to a close.  But I want to share this deliciousness with you because a) one of my New Years resolutions (I’ve been ignoring) was to update my blog more often and b) this recipe makes me happy. Plus,…
